INWRDAM also endorses creativities and actions whose results converge toward its objective of Water Diplomacy and Integrated Trans-boundary Water Management.
This symposium is driven by the commitment of INWRDAM towards the OIC water vision 2013-2025 which was adopted by the 2nd Islamic Conference of Water Ministers held in Istanbul in March 2012 and calls for knowledge sharing; collaborative activities, policy and management support and efficient management of transboundary basins.
The upcoming symposium will utilize a demand-driven approach to arrive at the following objectives:
• Use case study-based discussions to develop a 5-year trans-boundary water management vision to be adopted by INWRDAM. Case study discussions will include Tigress/Euphrates river basin, Indus river basin, Nile river basin, Niger River basin and Aral river basin.
• Develop a road map for enhancing the resilience of local communities in vulnerable basins.
• Develop a 5-year action plan and partnerships to achieve the OIC water vision objectives.
